Quality Assurance and the Shift towards Private Governance in Higher Education: Europeanisation through the Back Door?
Hartmann, Eva
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n3 p309-324 2017
This contribution focuses on quality assurance (QA) agencies in the sphere of higher education. It develops a theoretical framework that interrelates systems theory with Gramsci's theory of hegemony with a view to situating this new control of universities in the broader context of a further differentiation of society and emerging heterarchical modes of governance. A closer study of the emerging European market of QA agencies highlights the European dimension of this differentiation and the role of the market in advancing a variable geometry in the context of the European Higher Education Area.
